JJ & Megan had an unbelievable Oct. in the show ring, achieving the following:
- JJ breaks the male BIS record for Australian Shepherds set by Flapjack in 1996
- He then surpassed the record set by Grace in 2018
- Tied the record set by Cha Cha in 2022
On our way home already … so overcome with emotions… proud of JJ, Megan Hof, Jordan Moore, and Patti Sneed More for all your hard work… What a dream come true. We thank everyone so much for the wonderful support for Team JJ from all our friends and family. Second year in a row he won WESTMINSTER BEST OF BREED and then made the Cut in the Herding Group, but this is the FIRST time ever placing with a WESTMINSTER HERDING GROUP TWO What a great trip When Rick was watching JJ in the Best of Breed ring in New York, I was watching on my iPhone from Michigan. I told him, ”If JJ wins BOB, I am going to fly in and join the Team to watch groups.” Thanks to Mike & Roseann Bills for dog sitting our pack. We know that was a huge imposition. You are both a fantastic physical and emotional supportive part of Team JJ.
Thank you also to this year’s breed judge Mr. Tom Coen and Group judge Mrs. Sharon Redmer. Thank you also to the Westminster Kennel Club and Superintendents MBF for an amazing 146th Westminster Dog Show.

Mr JJ & Megan Hof had an amazing time in Perry, GA. They were awarded 6 BEST OF BREEDS, 2 HERDING GROUP 1’s, 2 HERDING GROUP 2’s, a HERDING GROUP 3, and a HERDING GROUP 4. Every time they showed, they walked out of the HUGE Herding Group with a placement. Tons of breed and all breed points. What a fantastic team effort with the help of Patti Sneed More & Linda Hof.
